Excellent file movement software

2018-01-09

Secure file movement, control, and reporting.

Pros

Support typically responds quickly. Alerting and viewing the history of files moved and job outcomes are very useful.

Cons

There are some minor features that could be included instead of having to create custom VB scripts, such as file counts.

Review of MoveIt Automation

2021-02-03

The biggest benefit I have seen is the ability to give people control to do their work without having to install a program on their PC.

Pros

The feature I like the most is the ability to have tasks start other tasks so that you can create processes that require little to no intervention.

Cons

The one thing I do not like is not having the ability to sort files when you browse them using MoveIt.

MOVEit makes lives more easier..!!!

2019-07-06

Simple, amazing, fast, reliable, secured and any-size of a file can be transferred.

Pros

With Moveit, file transferring has just gone to a new level.

Cons

If Moveit can develop a feature just to drag and drop files we need to share, that would be great.

MOVEit for workflow automation

2020-12-18

MOVEit is at the center of all of our workflow. We move thousands of files every day using MOVEit without issue and this service handles all of it effortlessly.

Pros

This product is versatile and infinitely customizable. We have a variety of tasks set up that range from simple to extremely complex and this product can handle all of it without issue.

Cons

The only issue we are running into is having to schedule regular runs in addition to watching for new files since the new file notification service on Windows often fails

We've used MoveIT Central for 2 years and it has helped us keep better track of our file movements.

2018-02-15

Pros

It is very simple to create a task and see task runs and file moves.

Cons

If you have the MoveIT Central version without Advanced Reporting, the audit trail isn't that helpful.

Great Product

2020-12-31

Pros

It's very easy to use and figure out. The UI is intuitive, it's flexible and has been able to anything I've tasked it with doing.

Cons

The only gripe, which is more of a feature request, is the ability to automatically delete emptied folders.

Set it and forget it

2021-02-03

The ability to log in to Office 365 Sharepoint and upload data to our cloud repository was a real game changer for easily and securely sharing real-time data with external sources.

Pros

Very intuitive to setup and use. Includes lots of choices for being notified if there is an issue so my team does not have to baby sit it.

Cons

The standard version of MoveIT that we purchased does not include the option to include a list of the files that were transferred in the email notification sent by the program.

MOVEit system works great for sharing files securely

2021-08-20

Uploading files is easy and efficient in MOVEit.

Pros

MOVEit is the system primarily used for submitting requested files. They send me a secure link, which takes me to my MOVEit account, and that is where I upload files and can send related messages.

Cons

If I were to leave my position, this keeps an audit record that my supervisor and potential future replacement could have access to even if they did not have access to my MOVEit account.

MoveIt is a good system to utilize for file movement.

2018-01-11

Easy of use, quick reporting, auditing exists at a very high level.

Pros

Configuration of new/existing tasks is much easier than scripting everything.

Cons

Auditing is not explicit to show what actions were performed, only an "update" by a username with a date time stamp. Even if one clicks "OK" and no change was made, it is audited as an "update".
